toft: Penetration Testing
The CIA wants to know what Harold Wren is building for Nathan Ingram, so they set a honey trap. They bait it with John Reese.

Snow had rambled halfway through the brief before he realized that John wasn't paying him any attention: as he trailed off, Kara's gaze jumped from Snow to John, then to the inoffensive, quiet-looking middle-aged man who had followed Snow into the briefing room only to sit in a corner without a word.

"Something on your mind, Agent?" Snow asked irritably.

"Sorry, Mark," John drawled. "It's just that I've never seen a cybrid before."

The Texas sun beating down was merciless, almost a physical weight on his shoulders. John couldn't move even to change the angle: the collar was tight, the cuffs were tight, and the chains had been pulled to their limits.

giandujakiss: rule63 Finch, protection
He used to think she just didn’t like him, or didn’t like people, the way she tensed when he dropped a casual hand on her shoulder – but now he’s realized, no, it’s that she likes it too much.

And John thinks, he can work with this.

queenklu: less bigger than the least begin
"Mr. Gully is my former employee,” says Finch, fingers splayed over another stack of printouts, Gully’s blank-smiling face lurking in the upper left corner.
“Oh.” John waits, but Harold doesn’t add anything, doesn’t move except where his fingertips are twitching against the paper. "Forgive me for saying so, Harold, but that seems like the kind of information you’d lead with.”

Written before 3x16 and thoroughly jossed thereby, but still a very enjoyable read.

astolat: If It's Not Love
John heard Harold say, "I'm leaving you clean clothing and some extra towels."

"Thanks," John called back, but after the door closed again, his brain rewound, and abruptly he remembered Harold's eyes jerking away from him and back to his screens, faint pink color in his cheek, carefully not-looking.

John put down his hands and just stood in the shower, water running over his skin. Harold did want him.

Reese came to in the trunk of the car, wrists zip-tied behind his back, sack tied over his head. The wheels were crunching to a halt on a dirt road. A few moments later, the guys opened the trunk and dumped him out and into a hole dug out of soft dirt: a grave.

At first, Harold sleeps with Mr. Reese because the Machine tells him to. What I love about this is that while the premise is mildly cracky, the execution is really not, and plays intriguingly with the Machine's Admin fixation and Harold's difficulty connecting to people.

The original protocols had called for a wipe-and-restore after each mission, but Harold had never liked the idea; if you wanted drones you should use drones, if you wanted to build yourself artificial operatives you should permit them to learn and grow the same as the organic ones. All the constructed memories in the world couldn’t take the place of experiential learning.

Harold does routine maintenance on John. Faintly creepy but also lovely. (so basically like canon. *g*) (AO3:

Twenty minutes ago Harold could have classified the pushups as a minor annoyance, heavy breathing and a continuous movement out of the corner of his eyes, but he was a dog owner these days and had the capability of tuning most things out. Ten minutes ago Harold had caught himself watching as John switched to one-armed pushups, changing from one arm to the other when he finished up a set, stopping only briefly to roll up his sleeves or wipe his brow before continuing on.

What he was doing now he could only classify as outright staring.
